Ash Wednesday (forgive them not)
I continue my theatrical performance, as I continue to pursue a lawsuit against this planet in the Highest Court in the land (are not all lawyers performance artists in a sense of the word - by the way, I am damned serious as well). First I reconsider requesting a judgment for a California Earthquake - judgment is best left to the judge. Previously I received a Court Order from this High Court declaring EARTH DAY a sacred holiday, and I remind the court that this order remains outstanding. I then move on to discuss our rebellious politicians, colonialism, Indian killing and theft (the damages remain uncollected). I then contrast the lack of outrage over recent Indian massacres with the outrage over Janet's Satanic Tit. This is followed by a call to 'fufill prophecies' concerning dykes and queers. I then destroy myths of White People and summarize by detailing the multi-trillion dollar judgment that justice demands (somehow I doubt that land reform will cover the tab, but I point people in the general direction where more trillions can be found to cover the debt.

Four More Years of Bush Please!
I cannot in all conscience support the platforms of any of the so-called front-runners in the Democratic Presidential primary including that of Senator John Kerry. The nebulous description of a universal health care system Senator Kerry is supporting that sounds like a repeat of Clinton's false promise in 92 does not contain the words "Not for Profit Single Payer Universal Health Care System".

Super Bowl show shameful for its violence — not nudity
The recent hoopla over Janet Jackson's "indecent" exposure at the Super Bowl is a prime example of how far we have slid into depravity in our society. At first, I laughed at the entire tawdry display ... certainly the raunchiest halftime show I had ever seen. Then it hit me — it was not necessarily the exposure of a breast that was shocking; it was the violence with which singer Justin Timberlake, with a grim but triumphant smile, ripped Ms. Jackson's bodice.

An anarchist discussion points out possible reasons and solutions. Points to consider: the meta of control desires, pros/cons of restrictive protection vs enriching protection

"Guns don't kill people, Charleton Heston does"
Sunday, November 17, 2002

About a week ago, my manager asked what my plans were for the weekend. Originally, me and a few friends were going to see "Bowling for Columbine," a documentary that explores the roots of violence in American culture. She asked me if it's because parents let their children watch rated R movies like Friday the 13th, to which of course I replied, " I don't know, I havent' seen the film yet."

The psychology of high-tech war crimes
The remarkable thing about high-tech killing is that it turns the barbaric and cruel into the merely practical and convenient. On a traditional battlefield, take-no-prisoners is an unambiguous war crime, and no commanding officer can have any doubt what to do with a soldier who decides to pick over the battlefield strewn with dead and dying enemy troops looking for survivors to whom to deliver the coup de grace. That soldier would have to be court martialed if the CO was upstanding and played by the rules.

This video depicts US Apache helicopter gunship pilots targetting, with clinical detachment, a man wounded on the ground, and deliberately, by their own account on film, firing on him and killing him. Read the complete ABCNews story here.

The tools demonstrate the value of personal information on the open market and enable people to access information encoded on a driver's license or stored in some of the many commercial data warehouses. Check out the Data Calculator, which shows how much your personal info is worth, and how the data brokers get it.

Chickenhawks Bush &Cheney
The top two Chickenhawks, George W. Bush and Dick Cheney, had different excuses to explain the yellow streaks down their backs. Dick Cheney said he was too busy to go to Vietnam. George W. Bush said he was too busy patrolling the skies of Texas. The reality is that both of them spent most of the Vietnam War boozing themselves up (and in George W's case indulging in some white candy on the side).
